Amnesty International on Friday condemned the suicide attack on a bus carrying Israeli tourists at Burgas airport, in Bulgaria on Wednesday night.

Five Israeli tourists died along with the Bulgarian bus driver and the suspected bomber, and more than 30 were injured.

“Deliberate attacks on civilians can never be justified,” said Ann Harrison, Amnesty International’s Deputy Program Director for the Middle East and North Africa. “Those responsible show an utter disregard for the right to life,” she said.

“This attack must be investigated independently and impartially. Those reasonably suspected of ordering or planning this attack should be brought to justice by a properly constituted court in compliance with international standards of fair trial,” added Harrison.
